Alarming Survey Results: Mental Health Top Concern Among Parents

Feb 10, 2023

In a recent Pew Research survey, mental health emerged as the top concern for parents regarding their children. This was a little surprising to me, considering all the other issues that face parents and kids, such as drugs, alcohol, teenage pregnancy, getting in trouble with the law, and bullying.

In this episode, I discuss the following topics:
– The list of concerns, and why mental health tops this list
– The concern about the suicide rates of kids
– How social media correlates with the decline in mental health
– What steps we can take as parents to protect our kids
